Loom Knit Zig Zag Mug Hug and Jar Hug Gift Set

By Kristen Mangus

How many times have you said, “I wonder how she came up with such a beautiful stitch pattern?”  I’m about to reveal a design secret…

It was an accident.  A mistake really.  When you’re knitting away late at night sometimes you lose count.  We’ve all done it and most of the time we end up frogging our late night project over our morning coffee.  But every once in a while it happens!  The happy accident.    That’s how the Loom Knit Zig Zag Mug Hug Pattern came about.  I was working on the Peppermint Jar Hug pattern for Yarnspirations and messed up my count.  I liked it so much I decided to create a pattern from my mistake.  I hope you enjoy this accidental pattern!
